    A short interview with Circa artistic director Yaron Lifschitz, talking mostly about his work on the latest show C!rca.

    'I think, though, ultimately, circus functions like a poetry cycle rather than a narrative. Like I think it is the ultimate actual real-time artform. I find that circus that makes too much of its connectivity, its threads, generally doesn’t interest me very much. I figure the juxtaposition, placement, quarrels between things are as interesting as, you know, "narrative" for want of a better word. Our work isn’t narrative-based.'
